Is it likely that "ideal" BuyZone values are changing over time? I mean was it 4 points for the whole statistics testing interval or was it moving like 5 points for 2006 and 4 for 2007???

From my research it seems that ideal value is changing over time.

My problem is that TRO and Michal claims that all the work has been done with statistics for us and that there is no need to reinvent the wheel and so on. It is not working for me - if Inet will go under or something other very bad happened I still want be able to recalculate stats again.

Would it be possible to reveal how stats were calculated and on what interval? I do not need exact numbers - just recalls from memory are fine... ;-)

Interval? It was done on a tick by tick basis. You can't get any more accurate than that.

We ran so many different statistics on price behaviour.

When NOT to trade the BUY ZONE?

Postby PINKPANTHER5 » Wed Mar 11, 2009 2:21 pm

When the market is moving rapidly it is probably advisable not to trade the Buyzone because you can get stopped out on both trades in seconds. I traded the EUR\USD and used the buyzone at 10:18 AM new york time and got almost instantly stopped out on both because the market was a little fast.

The best time would be after 12:00?? Or after the news announcements stop?


:wink:

You can get stopped out whether or not you use the BUY ZONE.

No one knows if the next tick will be up or down. That's why the market exist.

I was curious like you when would be the best times to trade BZ. So I created a strategy in Tradestation to start at Midnight and count the number of times that the price crossed over the opening price going back nine years of data. Then I would increment 5 minutes and do the same thing again over a 24 hour period. See attachment. The results arent really surprising when you think about it. I sorted the results and you are looking at the least number of crossings. Notice that Monday morning seems to just rock. Friday is a shorter session so I wouldnt put much weight on those values.

Thanks Avery for all of your help. Your kindness and generosity are much appreciated.

Rowdy,
Least # of crosses.
Do you mean crossing the buylsell zones or the TP zones?

Can you run one that checks to see which one's actually make it 11 pips from open?
Thanks,
Procharged
